Police briefly evacuate Trafalgar Square

British police have briefly evacuated London’s Trafalgar Square, close to where celebrations are to be held later to mark Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.

“The incident has now been concluded and the square will reopen in due course,” police said on Twitter on Saturday.

A police spokesman said earlier many checks were being carried out in the area, which is a short distance from where a concert is to be staged outside Buckingham Palace later in the day.

He said the incident was believed to have involved a suspicious package.
